This review is from: Enzotech MOS-C1 C1100 Forged Copper Heatsinks only
Pros: small enough to perfectly fit vga vrm. perfect for r9 290x aftermarket cooling, helps a lot with those pesky vrm temps on the Arctic accelero hybrid. comes with 3m tape (these guys invented sticky, your just doing it wrong, the stuff works). buy two packs at least if you are using them for the r9 290x
Cons: only comes in packs of 10 :( doesnt have magical heat inversion technology that makes my vrm temps sub zero... other than that they are great
Other Thoughts: Don't worry about the people who complain about the heatsinks not sticking, its user error, they stick just fine but you have to apply firm pressure for about 10 seconds to set it, and be sure to clean both surfaces beforehand. Any ways, who wants to use thermal tape? spend the 12 bucks and get some arctic thermal adhesive for a permanent bond, ESPECIALLY for vrm on your vga... those things will require the higher thermal conductivity of paste over tape to properly cool. I have these bristling from my 290x because the arctic hybrid doesn't cool the vrms for !*#$, but these did the trick, i can oc to 1150/1375 stable with two cards in the case maxed out. do the job right and these heatsinks will help. just say no to thermal tape kids (unless you absolutely want something non-permanent)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: great temps even with another card in the case, quieter than stock fan even at 100%, great for mining since its a reference card but always has hynix ram, i can set them all to the same settings and get about 985khs each.
Cons: not many... theres a slight rattling sometimes, can get very annoying but im sure this is my card and not a reflection of the build as a whole. im sure i can narrow down whats causing it and do something about it so no need to take an egg off
Other Thoughts: if your mining in a home rig, maybe one that you want to game on too, this is the best card. if you are mining on open air this might even be a good option because of the guaranteed high quality hynix ram that gets about 100khs more than elpidaREAD FULL REVIEW
